This protein powder is great! But I’m sure you might be wondering, “Sure, this protein powder is great…but how? What makes it different from every other protein powder?”

Here’s why:

“It’s a complete multi-source, alkaline-forming, plant-based protein powder blend, featuring 5,000mg of BCAAs and 5,000mg of glutamine per serving, Vega Sport Performance Protein is formulated to:

  • Improve strength and exercise performance
  • Repair and build muscles
  • Reduce recovery time between training

The recent innovation to Vega Sport Performance Protein comes from the addition of SaviSeed (sacha inchi) protein, a rich, plant-based source of the amino acid tryptophan. Tryptophan is a key component of serotonin production. Serotonin — the feel good hormone — helps with the mental aspect of recovery, so you’ll keep the drive alive and be motivated to train again. Take Vega Sport Performance Protein within 30 to 90 minutes of your workout or throughout the day to meet your individual protein needs to recharge and repair so you can do it all again, sooner.”

I also made Vega’s Orange Creamsicle Smoothie! It tastes sooooo delicious!! Please try out the recipe for yourself and let me know what you think!

That’s one of the great things about Vega Sport Performance Protein because you can add it into food! I advise you to check out Vega’s Recipe Page!! They have a wide array of fantastic, easy and delicious, recipes featuring their awesome products! You can find their recipe page here.

The other aspect of Vega I really admire is their mission:

Mission

  1. To share our passion for clean, plant-based nutrition through education and leading by example;
  2. To deliver premium, innovative, industry-leading wellness solutions to our valued customers;
  3. To live our commitment to constant improvement by pursuing perfection, one small change at a time;
  4. To foster a fulfilling, inspiring workplace for Vegatopians that’s sustainable for our people, our company, and our planet.

Isn’t that inspiring?! I think so!

So overall, I believe Vega Sport Performance Protein is an excellent addition to a healthy diet. I believe it tastes great too! And I know I’m not the only supporter! I have several guy friends that are huge whey protein drinkers (just picture the ultimate bros) and I gave them each a packet of this Vega Protein powder to try out. Most of them were very apprehensive, but they were swayed to try it because of its health properties. All of these “bros” told me they felt great after their workout and definitely want to incorporate Vega Sport Performance Protein into their workout regimes.

Please let me know your thoughts on protein powders and if you’ve ever tried Vega!! If you have not, I encourage you to try! And a special thanks to Vega for sending me a sample! You guys are the best!! 🙂

  1. How does the price compare to the amount received? Many powders come in large containers, i feel like this product may be too pricey at larger quantities

    • Excellent question! 🙂 I do believe Vega is more expensive than average protein powders on the individual serving level, but you get what you pay for. One packet is one serving size. Although, you can buy Vega in a large container as well. Protein powders in large containers are also very expensive (usually around $60 or more). I think Vega is still a good competitor in the “protein powder world” but it is at the upper end in terms of a price curve.

Cottage comments make my day! Please share your thoughts with me, darling.
